Let us leave our pictures open-ended


“I’m more interested in a photography that is ‘unfinished’ – a photography that is suggestive and can trigger a conversation or dialogue. There are pictures that are closed, finished, to which there is no way in.”

-Paolo Pellegrin
(Magnum Photos)

He has said the right thing.Why do we want to make well-rounded pictures which leave nothing to be discussed , nothing to argue about. There are several things in a photograph which occur much later than when the click takes place .The fantastic possibilities that exist for juxtaposing different worlds to derive newer meaning and beauty can actually occur after the event ,not during the composition and clicking. Let us leave our pictures open-ended.
